The Bad Batch will get a third and final season, this was revealed earlier today at Star Wars Celebration in London. A SWCE exlusive trailer was also shown which reveals that Palpatine will return in season 3, as well as Fennec Shand who was featured in season 1 and Wolffe.
However, the way animation is produced it is misleading to assume the season was greenlit just “now” or even recently. The fact that they could already show a teaser trailer means the season has been in (post) production for quite a while now, rendering takes quite some time. The dialogue was probably recorded more than a year ago, before Disney knew what the ratings for season 2 would be. Let’s just hope the producers were given advance notice that this will be the final season, so they can bring things to a proper conclusion. The Bad Batch will return for the final season in 2024.
Let’s also hope that showrunner Jennifer Corbett won’t waste time on random fetch quests and treasure hunts in season 3, since half of season 2 was entirely pointless, with the other half however delivering good to very good episodes that prove The Bad Batch could have been excellent if they had focused more on the actual plot.
Tales of the Jedi will also return. This was announced previously at SWCE.
Two weeks ago Lucasfilm released the anthology series Tales of the Jedi which can be considered a part of The Clone Wars, it uses the same artstyle and same animation, and the six short episodes focus on two different characters featured in The Clone Wars, fan favourite Ahsoka Tano and then the villain Count Dooku. Because of the structure of the series I will talk about the three Ahsoka episodes today, Life and Death, Practice Makes Perfect and Resolve, the 1st, 5th and 6th episode respectively. The Count Dooku episodes will follow next weekend or so, some time after Andor, which releases its new episode tomorrow.
Anyway, today we talk about Tales of the Jedi, or at least the half of it that focuses on Ahsoka. Fans of The Clone Wars will find many things to like here, even if Ahsoka’s episodes offer little that is actually new or all that interesting maybe. But let’s talk about all that in my spoiler review and click here or on the banner to proceed!
